Well, we know that, Tracy. Joe's just gotta be able to convince certain other people. :laugh:

Almaink, like the others, I wish you all good fortune in looking. I can't get over the rapid change in this area, and we only brought it in-house, really, in '04. But even since then.

The last time I was looking for work I was 46 and even at that age you got a lot of "we'll call you" comments that never materialized. I'm soon going to be 61 and if I lost this job I can guarantee I would not be able to land a prepress job in the USA.
Mexico? Dominican Republic? Jamaica? And probably Cuba soon! You could make it a lifelong vacation!

Hone up on your Corel draw skills for Cuban work. Seems that's all they use. But you can get a decent pdf out of the program, believe it or not. We've done tons of Cuban travel book with Corel Draw.

Oooh, that remark ought to bring a certain knife-wielding ex prepresser out of hiding.
